I am using a MacBookpro/Mountain Lion 10.8.2

I have two Time Capsule questions.

1.  My Time Capsule backs up automatically every hour.  Is there a way to change this so it only backs up maybe once per day or once per week?

2.  What is the difference between the Time Capsule and the Time Machine?

Thank you!

1. Time Machine makes hourly backups by default. You can use a third-party app as TimeMachineEditor to change the behaviour. 2. The Time Capsule is an Apple router that includes a HDD to make Time Machine backups or store whatever you want, and Time Machine is a Mac OS X feature included in Mac OS X Leopard that allows you to make backups of your HDD onto external disks

You can use TimeMachineEditor to modify the frequency with that Time Machine makes backups. It doesn't mind if you are using a Time Capsule or another external disk: it will work
